Derek said he really enjoyed his visit to Georgia and he is looking forward to his official visits. He has visited Ohio St and Georgia. Derek plans to visit (official) Tennessee. He is unsure of his plans to visit Florida in January. He says he will make the decision to officially visit Florida following an unofficial visit to Gainesville in December. When asked about his remaining official visit, Derek said it was between SCAR, UNC, Miami, NCST and PSU. Derek does plan to attend the UNC/Duke game this weekend on an unofficial visit. When asked about what he thought about Carolina, Derek said that he liked the coaching staff at Carolina but that he feels the SEC is a stronger conference than the ACC (although he said the ACC was a good conference). Derek is also planning to visit NCST this weekend on an unofficial visit.

A.J. just returned from his official visit at Texas. A. J. said that he liked the facilities, people and coaches. He said he felt like the staff at Texas was very honest and up front with him and that they were people he could trust. Coach Brewster is his primary recruiter. Inside Carolina asked A. J. about the potential playing time that Texas was telling him (given that Texas already has three verbal commitments at LB). A. J. was told that potential early playing time was available assuming he could beat out the other LBs. They also told A. J. that he was the only inside LB that they were recruiting. A.J. has official visits set for Miami 11/23, FSU 1/10 and UNC 1/18. He is not sure who will get the 5th official visit. A.J. plans to go to the Aub/AL game on an unofficial basis. He is looking at Auburn in that matchup.
